Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

It's a pop-up kind of summer, and per an announcement made this morning, Chandler-based co-working space Gangplank has joined the wave.

Through August 17, the collaborative workspace and Arizona State University will partner to create a public, creative hotspot in downtown Phoenix -- specifically in room 256 at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The Chandler-based incubation space has hosted a number of community events -- brown bag lunches with car builders, mentorship programs, fitness events, public art celebrations -- since it was founded in 2008 and has remained a source of local geekery and creative inspiration for all types in Phoenix.

Founders write that Gangplank's mission is "[to encourage] the free exchange of ideas that will lead to innovative solutions that change the world" while "providing a safe environment for failure."

Their Downtown space will host an open house this Friday, June 8, from noon to 2 p.m. in room 256. Drop by for an opportunity to check out the space and to sign up for summer workshops, and check out the Gangplank website for more information.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
